Last week, the Farm Bill was soundly defeated in the House by a vote of 195 to 232. Neugebauer voted in favor of the bill and said he was very disappointed in the bill’s failure. He went on to say that the bill did present a lot of good, common sense reforms, but for some representatives, it either wasn’t enough reform or it was too much reform.

“Certainly the Farm Bill was a disappointment to me. This is a Farm Bill that…brought some reforms both to the food stamps and the SNAP programs and the production agriculture side. And we just didn’t get the votes to get that. So now we’ll have to re-group and see where the leadership wants to go with this.”

Neugebauer added that no one who qualified who food stamps would have lost any of their benefits with the passage of the Farm Bill, and that it only served to reduce fraud.

Neugebauer also discussed the latest with immigration reform, saying that border security continues to be a major issue with the reform. He said that even if Congress passes all of these new regulation, it’s more important that Congress be committed to enforcing the regulations. Neugebauer also discussed some of the cases in the Supreme Court this week, including gay marriage and voting rights.
